And like you said (in the other sense of the word) his engine works pretty well when he throws it in "D".
I like how he uses his size to his advantage. There was a moment last game where he and Chara were skating into the corner for a puck. Chara tried to push him into the boards but Gallagher crouched so low he couldn't be moved despite the size/strength difference.
